Rally good food. Nice restaurant and extremely nice staff. We went for the tradition, hummus and other mezzes and we were more than satisfied. Everything fresh and tasty and the bread kept on coming right out of the oven... It is really worth the visit.

Smart & upmarket Arabic restaurant big choice for most people but a bit limited for a vegetarian. Food quality is good but some portions are small.

If you want to taste the real Lebanese cuisine, you must try Al Safadi restaurant. Freshness is great! You can choose fresh fish, eat flavored meat and fresh coloured vegetables. Desserts are all handmade prepared. Quick and kind service. For relaxing lunch or dinner this restaurant is the right location .

The restaurant is actually called "Al Safadi" and is part of the chain. Large outlet. You can't miss it. Take the exit 41. Go straight at the round about. After 100 meters you will find the McLaren showroom and shortly after the restaurant. All the Lebanese specialities available. We had delicious Humus, salad, mixed grill & lamb chops. I can... More

Eaten here at least 20 x over the last few years. It is one of the increasingly less common more traditional, old style Lebanese in central Dubai. I agree with some of the negatives - service could be friendlier. Unfortunately as is all too common here I think the Filipino waiters can be a bit down trodden and lose some... More

I went to this restaurant with my wife upon arrival in dubai, as it was very close to our apt. In the financial center. We had delicious dinner with hummus, lemon Marinated bins, birhany chicken and lamb. Very good white and brown bread. Juices are also very good and freshly squeezed. Recommended if you are in the neighborhood.

I have known this restaurant for years and until now I have mixed feelings about it. Some of the dishes are quiet amazing, some are disappointing and others are just average. The customer service is average and sometimes even dismissive and patronizing. Superb dishes: chicken livers in pomegrante molasses, fried cheese pastries, fried kebbeh, spinach pastries, rice with lamb and... More
